Chairman’s Column
Jim Hoffman
January 2010

The Board of Supervisor’s Organizational Meeting was held on Tuesday, January 5, 2010, at 9:00 a.m. I am very pleased that once again I was unanimously re-elected as Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. Other appointments to the Board included Clerk of the Board, Mrs. Sandy Sloane, and Deputy Clerk of the Board, Mrs. Debbie Liseno.

This marks my fifth term as Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. I look forward to working with my fellow Supervisors and the county workforce to address the upcoming challenges that our county government will face in the coming year.

In 2010, we welcome two new supervisors to the Board – Palmyra Supervisor Ken Miller, who replaced Dave Lyon, and Lyons Supervisor Brian Manktelow, who replaced Jim Fabino.

The Board adopted the 2010 Rules of Order at the Organizational meeting which include a new position of Vice-Chairperson of the Board of Supervisors. This individual is appointed by the Chairman. He or she will perform the duties of the Chairman of the Board should the Chairman not be available to perform them. The position is an appointed position with no additional compensation. Town Supervisor Lucinda Collier was appointed as the Vice-Chairperson for 2010 at the Organizational meeting.

There are seven Standing Committees to oversee county operations. The 2010 Standing Committees and corresponding Chairs of those committees are as follows: Finance – Macedon Supervisor Bill Hammond; Public Safety – Walworth Supervisor Bob Plant; Public Works – Sodus Town Supervisor Steve Leroy; Economic Development and Planning – Butler Supervisor Dave Spickerman; Government Operations – Rose Supervisor Lucinda Collier; Health and Medical Services – Wolcott Supervisor Kim Park; and Human Services – Huron Supervisor Laurie Crane.

Committee meetings are generally conducted the first week of each month. Schedules for committee meetings are posted at the Board Office and are posted on the County website co.wayne.ny.us under Board Minutes.

Regular meetings of the Board of Supervisors are on the third Tuesday of each month beginning at 9:00 a.m. in January, February, April, May, July, August, October, November and December, and at 7:00 p.m. in March, June, September and for the public hearing on the budget in December. The dates and times may be changed with proper notice.

The next regular board meeting is Tuesday, January 19, 2010 at 9:00 a.m.

Board meetings and committee meetings are open to the public. You are encouraged to attend.

On the Friday prior to regular board meetings at approximately 8:10 a.m., I am interviewed by Dr. Russ Jeffrey of Radio Station WACK 1420 AM over the telephone regarding county issues. This is an excellent opportunity to better inform the public of issues currently before the Board of Supervisors. I appreciate WACK 1420 radio allowing time for this in their programming and encourage people to tune in.
